EDC 2012: House Music Beef With DJ Sneak Plays Out in Steve Angello's DJ Set

Swedish House Mafia's performance style -- playing only its own hits, remixes and edits -- seems to be a thing: Kaskade, David Guetta and other "DJs" do it because audiences expect it.

Anyway, it seemed to us that Mr. Steve was making a statement, playing tracks that sampled the phrases, "Tear the club up" and "Fuckin' haters."

At the end of his set, as he handed the decks over to New York progressive house legend Erick Morillo, Angello introduced him as "the guy who taught me how to DJ in clubs."

Morillo chuckled.

That's quite a teacher. You want authentic? I'll match your Puerto Rican DJ (Sneak) with one born in Colombia (Morillo).

Game over?

Sneak, by the way, wasn't booked for EDC 2012.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
